1920s Art Deco Amethyst Coloured Rhinestone and Paste Vintage Necklace

Shimmering and delicate, this necklace dates from the 1920s.

Condition Report:

Good - Some rubbing to the plating on the reverse. One of the purple stones has sunk slightly in its setting. This stone is also slightly darker than the others and so could be a later replacement. These issues do not detract from the overall appeal of the piece. But it is priced accordingly to reflect this.
